How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe


Male: Today, on our 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, we're going to review and install the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, part number 39510 in conjunction with the Tekonsha direct fit wiring harness, part number 3016. Here's what our brake controller look like when it's installed. The dial here on the side of our brake controller allows us to set the angle of our brake controller as long as our dial can be turned and set so that our dial is straight up and down. It'll indicate the position of our brake controller and help set the internal potentiometer. Let's go ahead and plug in our trailer connector. Once we plug it in, here at the top, our light comes on to indicate that our trailer brakes are connected to the vehicle. One the passenger's side of the brake controller is the dial for setting our gain.

The gain is set to indicate how much power from zero to maximum we'll be sending back to the trailer braking. We recommend to set it about halfway to start with and then adjust according to the trailer size and load. Here on the front of our brake controller is our manual switch or sweep. The manual sweep can be used to apply trailer breaking without pressing on the break pedal. Notice the light changes as we send additional power back to the trailer braking.

Let's go ahead and show you how to install the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller. To begin our install, we need to locate the manufacture's break controller port. The port itself is underneath the black cover here on the driver's side between the parking brake and brake pedal. The cover itself has a total of three locks on it. We'll just pull back on these plastic fasteners. Release the cover.

Once the cover is removed, on the driver's side of the box will be a four pin little match . our direct fit wiring harness connector. We can simply take our direct fit wiring harness and plug in to the manufacture's brake controller port. Once we're plugged in, we'll go ahead and re-install the cover and route the other end of our wiring harness to over where we're going to mount the brake controller. Keep in mind as you route your wiring harness, you want to stay away from any moving components such as the steering shaft, parking, or brake pedal. Once I get the brake controller pig tail in the area where the brake controller is going to get mounted, we'll just leave it there for now and bring in the brake controller bracket.

The brake controller bracket is going to get secured here underneath the dash. We'll just use the hardware provided to secure it. We'll go ahead and bring in our voyager brake controller. We can take the pig tail coming out of the back of the brake controller. It plugs directly into our direct fit wiring harness. Then, we'll use the hardware provided to secure our brake controller to the bracket.Male: There we go. Just like that, we've got our brake controller firmly mounted. With the break controller mounted . .
